The reason Hallie is not mentioned as she is under 21 and the industry helping out these female racers is an adult beverage company.

“The Anheuser-Busch brand has committed to spending $10 million over the next three years to elevate women in NASCAR with the Busch Light Accelerate Her program. The objective is provide more funding, track time, media exposure and training to prospective female NASCAR racers aged 21 or older. “
